Do you know how to tell if a watermelon is ripe, when you are purchasing one, or when you want to harvest the watermelon in your garden?
Preheat the grill to medium - high.
In a bowl, mix together with a fork, the lime zest, lime juice, 3 tbsp. of the liquid honey, chili sauce and the salt.
Slice watermelon into about 1" slices (crosswise), and then halve each slice, and halve each piece again. You now have watermelon cut into wedges.
Lightly drizzle each side of the watermelon wedges with the remaining liquid honey, and place the wedges on the heated grill.
Grill until grill marks appear, about 1 - 2 minutes.
Turn, and grill again for about 1 - 2 minutes until browned.
Keep a close watch, the grilling does not take long!
Transfer the grilled watermelon slices to a plate, and drizzle them with the lime dressing.
Garnish the grilled watermelon wedges with the freshly chopped cilantro.
